As was my M.O. in those days, I was having all sorts of crushes on women who were flirtatious but did not share my feelings. (Gio helped arrange this song) - Ash

Simple Answers
by Ash McDaniel


Simple answers theoretically speaking
should turn up easily but I am so confused
I turn this over and over in my mind
All the implications all the time

But I can't seem to put it all together
The picture I see could just be fantasy
Am I fooling myself?

Simple answers used to turn up easy
Used to be I knew what I was looking for
I turn you over and over in my hands
Look from every angle, where do I stand?

But I can't seem to put it all together
The picture I see could just be fantasy
Am I fooling myself?

Simple answers maybe one will never come
Always to be hidden, or nothing to be found
But still I'll look you over with every word
Try beneath the surface of what I heard

But I can't seem to put it all together
The picture I see it must be fantasy
I'm fooling myself
